Many views believe that coach Erik Ten Hag should test Scott McTominay in the role of a striker, but the Dutch teacher refused.
Scotland played extremely well in 2 matches in Euro 2024 qualifying in March, they beat Cyprus 3-0 and beat Spain 2-0. Surprisingly, defensive midfielder Scott McTominay has scored 4 out of 5 goals for Scotland.
On social media, many MU fans are begging coach Erik ten Hag to let Scott McTominay play as a striker instead of Wout Weghorst, who just missed four delicious opportunities in the match between the Netherlands and Gibraltar. Even experts also advised the Dutch teacher to test the player born in 1996 in the highest position on the attack.
Speaking at the press conference before the match against Newcastle United, coach Erik Ten Hag also praised McTominay’s finishing ability. However, Ten Hag insists he still sees the star as a midfielder, saying:
“Scott can take on many roles, from defence, midfield to attack. He is a very versatile player. It is clear that he has the ability to score. Also this season, “For us Scott is a really impressive finisher, but I see him as a midfielder.”
“I think I’m satisfied with what Wout is doing. Because with Wout, the team will perform better.”
MU is currently ranked 3rd in the English Premier League but only ahead of Newcastle, the team ranked 5th is the distance of exactly one win. If they lose, MU will lose 3rd place to the opponent due to poor sub-index.
